Yale University has released its Early Action notifications for the Class of 2025. In all, 7,939 students applied to Yale in the Early round. The figure marked a new benchmark for the New Haven, Connecticut-based institution. Of these 7,939 applicants, 837 earned admission. 72 students were also offered admission via QuestBride. This marks an Early Action admit rate for the Yale Class of 2025 of 10.54%. And how do these numbers stack up as compared to previous Early Action cycles at Yale? Well, last year, 5,777 students applied EA, 796 earned admission, and the EA admit rate stood at 13.8%. The year before? 6,016 students applied Early Action to the Class of 2023, 794 were offered admission, and the EA admit rate stood at 13.2%. In fact Yale’s EA admit rate has never dropped below 13.2%. So its 10.54% EA admit rate this fall broke that record in style.

As reports Amelia Davidson for The Yale Daily News in a piece entitled “Yale admits 10.5 percent of early applicants,” “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s admissions cycle differs from years past. For the first time, Yale’s application process is entirely test-optional. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions announced the change in June, citing concerns about testing center closures due to the pandemic. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions has also conducted all of its outreach virtually this year, as all in-person tours and events were canceled. According to Mark Dunn, director of outreach and recruitment and associate director at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, virtual information sessions and outreach events have been able to reach significantly more prospective students than in a typical year — 47,000 prospective students registered for joint virtual events featuring Yale in 2020, compared to around 8,500 in 2019.”

Congratulations to our students at Ivy Coach who earned admission to Yale this Early Action cycle! Go Bulldogs!
